What happens when we follow society too much? In the book Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, we meet the wife, Mildred, of the main character, Guy Montag. Mildred has become self-centered, robotic, and unfeeling due to the ways of society. First, you can tell Mildred is self-centered because she wants more and more for herself. For example, she asked Montag when he was getting her a fourth wall put in.
In a novel full of remarkable characters, Mildred Montag lies on the other end of the spectrum. Mildred, Guy’s artificial, hollow wife, reminds the reader how the common citizen of society lives life and interacts with others. With her hardest decision in her shallow void of a life being deciding what show to watch on her 3-wall television, Mildred sees her life as perfect and won’t have her opinion rattled by anyone or even herself. She refuses to recognize the emotions locked away under her fragile, bleached skin. Mildred Montag is the epitome of a mediocre citizen who sees her life as the best it can possibly be due to lack of ambition, and this character is what my representation encaptures.

Miss Brill’s loneliness plays a major role in her dynamic character. Her way of comforting her loneliness is by “sitting in others lives”(358) this made her feel a part of something she wasn’t. Her way of comforting her loneliness changed her mentally, She had become “quite an expert” in inserting herself into others’ lives . “[Miss Brill] always looked forward to conversations” (358) ,so she could insert herself into them and judge them.

Both of these characters are different because Katniss really likes the attention, which is portrayed at the capital, as she stands out among her peer tributes and Tris likes to be socially accepted as she enters into the Divergent faction.
